    But back on Obama, look how he achieved success....not with a square wheel.
    And if we grant amnesty to illegals, the people MOST hurt will be black Americans. They think they're unemployment rate is high now? Just watch.

    Somehow, conservatives have to win this to protect our black American brethren. They are once again voting against their own interests.

    I don't know if the narrative of how white people be like this and black people be like that is really helpful.

    Yeah, we never want to look at the results of existing data. I was responding to his post about a couple of blacks changing "sides", and how that doesn't mean **** because it doesn't address the problem. But this is somewhat off topic. The thread is really about Obama's scandals fallout.

    That's fine but scandels themselves don't solve problems, what has been done to solve the problems that resulted in Benghazi, the IRS, the NSA wiretappings, etc, etc? If its a problem, where's the solution? Instead of we just have people pointing out the problem over and over again without offering any solution.

    I realize it is just two people, but they are people with influence in an area where there is a large Black population.
    Black leadership is still stuck on stupid
    Not all Black leaders. Certainly those in the NAACP won't change quickly but there are leaders outside the traditional Black tents who are speaking out and, I believe, will eventually make a difference. The Jesse Jackson/ Al Sharpton types are history.

    Of course there is the possibility I'm being too optimistic, but unless they do change course their downward direction will remain the same. Maybe they're beginning to realize that.

    Indeed. Where are the solutions? Who is responsible? Ironically...the only people we KNOW about are not being fired, they are being promoted.

    The first step to the solution would be to elect leaders who have some significant experience in leadership and management, and with a proven track record. Electing anyone based only on the color of their skin, with only trite slogans to offer, is certainly not what MLK was all about and not what is required for being President of the world's only remaining Superpower. Repeating the error did not say much for the American electorate or their willingness to solve the nations problems.

    To me this all started with the Tea Party. I know, seems unrelated. But we haven't seen a new "party" influence politics in Washington since the party that Teddy Roosevelt invented. The much hated Tea Party has shaped elections since 2010. Anyway, the Tea Party represents a group of people that is fed up with the way things have been going in Washington. In this case taxes and big govt. But Washington has been scandal plagued for some time. And more and more people are getting fed up with Washington as a whole. Frankly I think the "Tea Party" concept is going to get bigger, although it may not reflected in the number of Tea Party candidates winning. It's not really a party, but a movement that stand for "enough is enough". Obama's scandals are adding to the frustration. A couple of blacks jumping ship is an indication, but most blacks are not ready to jump ship especial with a black president in office. Obama has not delivered his social justice promises, and blacks are frustrated. I don't think you'll see many blacks move to the right (or toward non-left) until after Obama is gone. It'll be long and slow, because the Left will continue promising and not delivering cause the budget for the gravy train isn't there anymore.
